RSC'S Chemistry World amongst big names in 2013 Online Media Awards
16 May 2013
The Royal Society of Chemistry's Chemistry World publication joins a glittering list of finalists for this year's Online Media Awards.
The shortlist reads as a who's who of the journalism world, including Channel 4, Sky, the New York Times, USA Today, CNN, MSN, The Guardian, The Times, BBC, al-Jazeera and the Huffington Post.
Chemistry World editor Bibiana Campos-Seijo says she is delighted that Chemistry World has been shortlisted: "These accolades are very prestigious within the media industry and, with nominees in other categories including some of the biggest names in journalism such as Channel 4 News or the BBC, it is very reassuring to have our brand recognised in this way", she said.
"The best specialist site for journalism category highlights the excellent work that regional and niche sites such as Chemistry World are doing and we face very tough competition from the likes of the Press Gazette and Nursing Times.
"Nevertheless, we are now looking forward to the awards ceremony on 12 June to hear who the winner is".
The awards, now in their third year, are organised by The Drum, sponsored by iomart Group, IE School of Communications and supported by the National Union of Journalists, the Society of Editors and the British Journalism Review.
Gordon Young, publisher of The Drum and organiser of the awards, explains that they aim to identify the cleverest, boldest and most original purveyors of news and views from around the world and reward the best in online news and journalism.
He said: "This year's fantastic list of nominations truly reflects the rapid development and investment in the online side of the newspaper publishing business. They provide strong evidence that publishers are understanding the online dynamic and pushing the boundaries into new and exciting territories.'
"The standard and variety of entries has been extremely high this year and this has ensured a high calibre shortlist. Our judges really have had their work cut out in terms of deciding who will pick up the prestigious awards in June."
